Overview & Highlights

This luxurious, slow-paced and romantic holiday also offers more active or adventurous options. Visit tropical jungle, a spruced-up colonial city and gorgeous beach properties in two welcoming republics.

  • Guided excursion of Doka coffee estate
  • Guided tour of Granada and Masaya volcano
  • On-site tours from days 3-6 including sunset birdwatching, Osa trail and nightwalk

This holiday will suit romantic couples and honeymooners looking for a slow-paced itinerary combining exquisite natural locations, including the wild-life rich Osa Peninsula, with plenty of time for relaxation on Nicaragua's unsullied beaches at the end.

Spend a few days at a luxury rainforest lodge on the Pacific’s Osa Peninsula. Move on into Nicaragua to a boutique lodge on one of over 300 islets. Later, move on to a renowned upmarket lodge and working farm enveloped in jungle on a cliff overlooking a long soft-sand beach. In each place there are opportunities to take excursions into the countryside, engage in outdoor activities or laze by the pool.

The tropical republics of Costa Rica and Nicaragua share gorgeous landscapes of volcanoes, lakes, palm-fringed beaches, citrus plantations, fertile slopes smothered in coffee bushes, and a huge diversity of flora and fauna. Costa Rica has long had a network of accessible national parks with extensive hiking trails, as well as adventure activities from zip-lining to white-water rafting. Nicaragua is new to this kind of development but is gaining a reputation for responsible tourism with top-end wellbeing-focused eco-lodges opening all over the country.
